How To Make Coconut Milk Kefir


Step 1If the cream in your coconut milk has separated from the water, shake well or stir with a non-metal spoon. Add the kefir starter and shake or mix until combined. I like this kefir starter because it's easy to use.

Step 2Cover it loosely and leave at room temperature for 24-48 hours in the kitchen or place in the oven (only with the light switched on - do not turn the oven on). The best temperature for making kefir is 22 C - 30 C (72 F - 86 F).

Step 3Taste the kefir in 24 hours and leave to culture for up to 48 hours if needed. When done, shake before use and store in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can make a new batch by using about 3 tablespoons of the cultured mixture and mixing it with more coconut milk.

Step 4Optionally, add your favourite low-carb sweetener, unsweetened vanilla extract, cinnamon or berries and make a smoothie. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
